Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for UFC 135. “Jones vs. Rampage” will air via Facebook, Spike, and Pay-Per-View on Saturday night. The evening’s action will be headlined by former light-heavyweight champ Quinton Jackson going up against current champ Jon “Bones” Jones. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.
As lead writer here, I do my best to make quality peeks into the future. That being said, anything can (and does) happen in mixed martial arts. With an overall 471-303 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I see the action inside the cage going down from Denver.
